The 07/29/13 Joy Jar

29 Jul

Moi has had the opportunity to watch an extremely greedy person over a period of time. Everyone need s certain base level of money, mamman, $$ or whatever to meet basic needs. This individual’s needs for $$ are not so much to meet basic needs, but to make them feel that they are of some worth and because they are of some worth, their worth should be recognized. Moi finds them utterly repulsive. That emotion says quite a bit about moi as well. She is far from perfect and still a work on the Potter’s Wheel. Still, she strives on an aspirational level to make choices which are more in accord with a different view of life and a different view of how people should be treated. While moi chooses to stay as far away from this person as possible because she finds them repulsive. Moi needs to choose to work on seeing them as God sees us all, with Grace and as a work in progress. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is choice.

“We are our choices.”
Jean-Paul Sartre

“Heroes are made by the paths they choose, not the powers they are graced with.”
Brodi Ashton, Everneath

“We don’t get to chose what is true. We only get to choose what we do about it.”
Kami Garcia, Beautiful Darkness

“I won’t tell you that the world matters nothing, or the world’s voice, or the voice of society. They matter a good deal. They matter far too much. But there are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely—or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands. You have that moment now. Choose!”
Oscar Wilde

“Life is partly what we make it, and partly what it is made by the friends we choose.”
Tehyi Hsieh

“It’s up to you today to start making healthy choices. Not choices that are just healthy for your body, but healthy for your mind.”
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

“At the end of the day, the questions we ask of ourselves determine the type of people that we will become.”
Leo Babauta

“Life is not a matter of chance…it is a matter of choice.”

“It’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.”
Roy Disney
